No: 4 oz of children's tylenol equates to 3,840 mg for the day. As long as you didn't take any additional tylenol, you should be fine. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Antibiotics: This should alleviate the infection which is causing the pain, then you can cure the problem by having the tooth treated properly either by endodontics, periodontics or oral surgery all depending on the proper diagnosis and your decision as to how you wish to treat your body. ...Read more

Have a terrible toothache, but oxycodone is making me a bit queasy. Will an 800 mg ibuprofen help enough with pain relief?

Have a terrible toothache, but oxycodone is making me a bit queasy. Will an 800 mg ibuprofen help enough with pain relief?

800 mg can help: If you have a severe toothache, seek immediate help from your dentist before the problem becomes worse and more complicated. Remember, toothache pain will not go away on its own. Ibuprofen 800 mg can help relieve the pain, where inflammation is present, caused from dental pain until you consult your dentist. ...Read more

Priorities: Make it a priority to be seen sooner. Severe toothaches can't wait. The pain may become unbearable in a very short period of time. Pain meds can provide little relief when proper care has not been rendered. ...Read more

Is crocin pain relief tablet useful on tooth pain? Please advise!

See your dentist: Crocin is acetaminophen and caffeine. Taken by mouth it may offer some relief but a tooth ache will not go away with pain medication or on its own. You need to see a dentist for an exam and diagnosis of what is causing your pain. A tooth typically won't hurt unless the nerve has become involved. It will only get worse. See your dentist asap. Good luck. ...Read more

Is sinus pressure a symptom of TMJ disorder? Best ways to relieve TMJD symptoms? Which OTC pain relief medicine is safest/most effective for TMJD?

Not usually...: Sinus pressure is usually not a symptom of TMJ disorder. Remember that there are lots of other things that can cause pain attributed to TMD, so having a full evaluation by your doctor is important. If indeed the diagnosis is TMD, then a trial of an OTC NSAID (Ibuprofen, Aleve) is common. Other meds, more education and a change in habit/behaviors that make it worse can be discussed with your doc ...Read more
